Like all things in life, evolution takes place. Improvements, advancements and new technologies emerge improving upon once perfectly acceptable methods. Advancements have been implemented across all healthcare fields including Chiropractic which has improved dramatically from its humble beginnings over 100 years ago.
Now there is a NEW and BETTER way to maintain spinal health that is effective, evidenced-based, comfortable and most importantly SAFE. Gone are the days of twisting, turning and cracking. This old method can be scary and may actually reinforce a negative postural pattern. This is particularly true for young, developing children and older adults with degeneration and chronic spinal issues.
Chiropractic is all natural health care and a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. A Chiropractor is a healthcare professional that specialises in the relationship between our STRUCTURE (Vertebrae - Bones of the Back) and FUNCTION (The Central Nervous System). This is the foundation of Chiropractic.
A Chiropractor’s goal is to ensure the spine is properly aligned and proper Nervous System function is maintained.
There are hundreds of everyday things that interfere with the optimum function of the nervous system. Poor posture, unbalanced repetitive work activities, lack of exercise, sports and work injuries, poor nutrition, environmental pollution (food, air and water) daily emotional / physical stress and the list goes on and on.
Chiropractics aim to locate and remove interferences to your nervous system. This interference is caused by a Misalignment or what Chiropractors call a Subluxation. This occurs when one or more bones in the spine become misaligned, lose its normal mobility and balance and causes irritation to the nervous system (nerves). This creates a block in communication between the brain, spinal nerves and the body.
Chiropractors perform a thorough history including Orthopaedic, Neurological and Chiropractic exams along with X-ray analysis. This evaluation will allow the Chiropractor to uncover any structural problems and/or underlying pathology. All of these examinations combine to help identify regions of spinal malfunction and allow the Chiropractor to create a custom treatment plan for the patient.
If you want to experience your first chiropractic care, here's what to expect during your chiropractic session:
In addition to making sure that your spine is properly aligned, we offer chiropractic treatments for all types of pain, caused by pre-existing condition that you may not be aware of.
Doctors of Chiropractic are experts in spinal care. Government, medical and scientific studies have consistently shown Chiropractic to be twice as effective and half as expensive as more invasive medical procedures, toxic drugs and other forms of therapy for spinal conditions. Recent studies have shown that Modern Chiropractic is significantly more effective and safer than traditional Chiropractic methods. Although Chiropractic is much safer than invasive surgeries and prescription drugs, Modern Chiropractic, specifically the treatment using NASA Chiropractic at R3vive Centres, is the safest and most effective Chiropractic approach.
Your Chiropractor will determine your treatment plan based upon exam findings. Treatment duration and frequency is established based on how long it will take the patients spine to regain proper function. This will vary depending on age, length of problem, severity of condition and ability of the spine to adapt to corrected mobility patterns and alignment. It is imperative to be mindful that pain is always the last to arrive from a long standing problem and often the first to disappear. The longer you have had a problem and the more complicated your condition will impact the treatment duration required.
At R3vive Centres, we only use the most advanced Chiropractic techniques and technologies. Our treatment uses Computerised Biosensors to detect areas of dysfunction and patented NASA technology to correct them. These adjustments are specific to the spinal condition present and follow the anatomical laws of the body. This is the safest and most effective Chiropractic therapy available, that is evidenced based and scientifically verified to be precise, specific and effective in treating spinal and joint dysfunction.
R3vive Centres use the SMART approach to treat their patients:
S – Safe
M – Mobility
A – Alignment
R - Re-balance
T - Technology
